From May 20th to May 22nd, the first Guizhou University Students Metallographic Skills Competition was held in Guizhou Minzu University. The competition was sponsored by the Education Department of Guizhou Province and organized by Guizhou Minzu University. After a fierce competition, Zhao Zhile from grade 2019 materials Science and Engineering major of School of Chemistry and Materials won the first prize of the province, Zhang Hao and Chen Jiangyuan won the second prize, and Yao Hai and Jian Yuchun and Kong Qinghao from School of Physics and Electronic Science won the third prize. Wang Yu, Chen Deliang, Ren Junpeng and Wu Xupu won the Award of Excellent Instructor.
After preliminary selection, 66 contestants and more than 40 instructors from 11 undergraduate colleges and universities in Guizhou province, including Guizhou University, Guizhou Normal University, Guizhou Minzu University and Guizhou Education University, participated in the competition. Mr. Ren Junpeng from School of Chemistry and Materials and Mr. Wu Xupu from School of Physics and Electronic Science led the team to participate in the competition. Mr. Ren Junpeng was invited as an expert judge. The provincial competition is divided into preliminary and final, and requires participants to complete grinding, polishing, corrosion and metallographic observation of specified metal samples within 30 minutes. The judges evaluated the contestants' metallographic experiment skills from four aspects: image quality, sample cleanliness, sample flatness and operation habits. In the final, 7 first prize winners, 13 second prize winners and 21 third prize winners were awarded.
This competition is a good start for our university in the provincial metallographic skills competition. In the future, the School of Chemistry and Materials will take this provincial competition as an opportunity to actively prepare for the 11th National College Students Metallographic Skills Competition. At the same time, we will continue to strengthen the support of college student competition, and provide help for the construction of the master's program of materials and chemical engineering and the training of talents in the discipline.
